Biden Is Caught Between A Mask And A Hard Spot

Original Article

Posted By: zephyrgirl, 4/20/2022 9:22:24 AM

Just days after President Joe Biden’s Centers for Disease Control ordered yet another extension of the federal mask mandate, a Florida judge ruled that the agency had no authority to impose it in the first place, saying that “our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends.” To public cheers, the TSA, Amtrak, the Washington Metro system, and other public transportation systems immediately ditched their mask requirements, even though the Biden administration is appealing the ruling in hopes overturning it. No one, it seems, trusts the CDC anymore. But all of this comes as COVID cases appear to be on the upswing.

They're already mortally wounded, politically, but if they appeal this and, particularly, if they win, they will have committed political suicide.

They will have to betray their beloved "democracy" if they again force people to wear masks. It is obvious that the majority do not want mask mandates.

They are conflicted on how to make everyone feel afraid so they can allow all kinds of mail-in and drop off votes come November.

I suspect that the majority of the Dems know that they are toast, so they will no longer care about the consequences of their actions. Expect more BS right up through January 2023.

No politician tells a "panicky nation" that it's been panicked over nothing/not much. My goodness, we have HEROES out there from grocery baggers to truck drivers, nurses, teachers, and virtually everyone out there...and now they're not heroes anymore? No, a politician tells the nation how it is "USA Strong!", and that we pulled through together, minimized the death toll by being good citizens, getting tested and vaxed as told by "scientists". And, while we can now begin our journey back to that "new normal" to remember how this could re-surface at any time, to be vigilant, and test, test, test!!!

"Re-surface at anytime." Kind of like the flu every year? Good grief. Life is full of risks and just get on with living.

I'm now getting over the first case of flu I have caught in three years. It's widespread around here. Much worse than the two times I had COVID. Still not that bad. Lots of people coughing. Very few are wearing masks. Not even Demzis. People are on to their schemes. Including the vote fraud and censorship and media coordination. We might get lucky and have a bloodless revolution this time.

Biden's handlers actually want all the COVID restrictions to end. At least until after the election. They know those restrictions will cost them votes. They are counting on the American public to be forgiving once the restrictions end. At this point most of Washington wishes they could put an end to elections entirely. They just get in the way of what they are doing.

It's really simple, you can wear a mask any time you desire, but they just aren't able to mandate it any longer. You can assess your own particular medical situation, your own risk tolerance, and determine whether you want to wear a mask at the store, on public transportation, etc... The funny thing, there are people who've become conditioned to waiting to hear dictates from some government agency instead of thinking for themselves.

The last paragraph says it all. Let us decide for ourselves what we will do about this "horrific resurgence"....which seems to be so mild and inconsequential that there are almost deaths from the Wuhan flu in my county of well over 600,000 in weeks of reporting. Current data shows about one death every ten days or so. Given that they still won't treat this early, and they seem to mark down every death "with" Wuhan flu as "from" the disease, real or not, this seems to be pretty much over. Down to background noise. Leave us ALONE, let is run our own lives. We don't believe anything the CDC says, anyway.

Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick reveals he's desperate to return to the NFL nearly six years after he became the first athlete to take a knee during the national anthem. Kaepernick, speaking exclusively with I Am Athlete, said he is 'absolutely' and 'without question' ready to make his league comeback after having not thrown a pass in the pros since January 1, 2017. 'That's five years of training behind the scenes to make sure I'm ready at the highest level,' Kaepernick said during a candid interview following a training session with former NFL wide receivers Chad Johnson and Brandon Marshall.

Feinstein, 88, had long been renowned in Washington for an issue-focused passion and quick wit -- but one California Democratic lawmakers told the San Francisco Chronicle there was 'no trace of that' in recent months.

Disgraced Prince Andrew strong-armed the Queen into letting him take centre stage at a memorial service to his late father Prince Philip yesterday, insiders have said. The Duke of York is understood to have got his way after lobbying to take his 95-year-old mother to her seat because she 'couldn't say no to her favourite son' despite objections from William and Charles, sources claimed. The Dean of Westminster had been expected to take the Monarch to her seat while the Prince followed behind, but footage captured shortly after they entered the Abbey shows the shamed royal clinging to his mother's arm.

Madeleine Albright, the first woman to be Secretary of State, died on Wednesday from cancer at age 84. The mother of three served under President Bill Clinton from 1997 to 2001 and was a longtime diplomat. Albright was born in 1937 in Prague, Czechoslovakia and immigrated to the United States with her family in 1948 as a refugee in the aftermath of World War II. Her family fled to Britain in 1939 to avoid the Nazis and then the United States nearly a decade later to escape the communists' grip on Czechoslovakia.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain gave President Joe Biden grade-A marks for his fitness in a post-State of the Union interview Wednesday. 'He's definitely in better shape than I am, that's for sure. He's very fit, he works out almost every day in the morning before he comes down to the Oval Office,' Klain said in a virtual interview with the Economic Club of Washington. 'I think his fitness, his vigor, is beyond question.' Speaking to billionaire philanthropist David Rubenstein, Klain pointed to the 79-year-old Biden's performance at Tuesday night's State ofthe Union as evidence that being the country's oldest president isn't holding the Democrat back.

Friends of Prince Harry have warned his no-holds barred book will lay bare his true feelings towards his step-mother Camilla and is likely to 'shake the monarchy to its core'. The Duke of Sussex, 37, is set to publicly spill all on his relationship with his estranged family in an explosive £14.7million ($20million) memoir due to be published later this year. The Royal Family has been left deeply concerned by Harry's decision to secretly collaborate with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter JR Moehringer on what his publishers described as 'the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him'.

I must admit that I was very wrong about Biden. I thought he'd be out of office by June 2021 at the latest. Instead, technically speaking, he's still in office. But looking at a recent, very disturbing little video of Joe Biden being gently led away from the podium by his caretaker/wife, Mrs. Joe Biden, one has to wonder what kind of an empty shell of a man is helming what long was the most powerful nation in the world.

Why Are Women Unhappy 40 replies

A little over a decade ago, two researchers at Wharton published a paper showing that, despite women’s increasing work and educational opportunities, their self-reported happiness was in steady decline. Back in 1970, women were on average happier than men; they are now less happy than men. Broadly, since 1970, everyone has gotten more miserable. But the decline in women’s overall happiness has outpaced men’s, and the happiness curve inverted sometime in the early 1990s. The paper also documents increasing anxiety and neuroticism, as well as decreasing social cohesion among women.

Netflix stock plunges 37% on shocking

Shares of Netflix plunged 37% Wednesday morning after the streamer reported earnings Tuesday evening that showed it lost subscribers for the first time in more than ten years. The results and weak outlook led to a wave of downgrades from Wall Street over fears of the company's long-term growth potential. Netflix said several headwinds are impacting growth, including competition and the easing pandemic restrictions. The company had been significantly boosted by coronavirus stay-at-home orders, as more people sought out digital entertainment. But people spent less time on digital platforms as vaccines rolled out and mandates eased. Slower household broadband growth also played a role in the company's weak forecast.

President Joe Biden has reportedly told former President Barack Obama that he intends to run for re-election in 2024. He wanted to be president for decades, so his desire to keep the Oval Office is unsurprising. But the case for a second term is quite weak — and voters know it even if Democrats in dreamland don’t.Inflation is at its worst in 40 years, erasing wage growth. Crime is surging in many major cities. Employers are struggling with labor shortages. Illegal immigration could top 2 million encounters this year, amid a border crisis that has been spiraling out of control since virtually the moment Biden took office.
